Simply as the subject. I like the green juice, it rare the so pure drink in a restaurant. You could have a healthy dinner there too. The food there looks delicious but low calorie. I will be back there anyway. 下班后喝一杯的好地方。我喜欢绿汁,难得餐馆里有如此纯粹饮料。你也可以在那里吃顿健康的晚饭,食物看起来很有食欲但卡路里不高的样子。我会再去的。

Delicious food, amazing service and beautiful interior. Get the eggs benedict, it's delicious! The croissants are also to die for

Lattes are great! Orange juice was freshly squeezed and tasted lovely. Nice street seating area. Staff are friendly enough. 16€ for 2 croissants, 1 coffee and 1 juice seemed alot though.

Not really a "diner" as in addition to hamburgers, Caesar salads and great french fries, you will also find Fish ceviche (their interpretation is far from the true Peruvian dish, but still OK). Very friendly service, and nice terrace on the sidewalk for a summer evening.

We enjoyed a lovely French style breakfast here of croissant and baguette with butter and honey pared with some of the best coffee. Prices are very reasonable if not cheap. Service is quick and waiters speak English and are happy to explain what some of the dishes consist of. The menu is simple and well laid out. We sat outside... More

Small friendly restaurant, serving great food. Really cannot say anymore than that. If staying in the Latin quarter, you should visit

In the Latin quarters, a small bistro like the many street side cafes. What distinguishes it is the food, it's freshness, and it's ingenuity in bold flavores. I had the following in my stay in Paris. Acail bowl, carrot cake with lime flavored icing. For lunch I had their fish and chips which was awesome. And not to mention my... More

Caroline has a lovely apartment next door as an Airbnb and she recommended Loulou as we arrived from New York. The flight was delayed and we arrived at lunch time instead of breakfast, so just in time for Loulou. Pleasantly surprised with their fresh juices offering like the carrot, ginger, orange that was excellent after that flight, I had two.... More

We had the gluten-free chicken burger which was very good. The fries were more like a mix of fries and chips/crisps and were decent. We also had the regular vegetarian burger which we did not think was very good. The atmosphere is nice but the prices seemed to high compared to other similar restaurants.
